    So, we currently have a two-way tie with 3 others just 1 vote behind. :D

    Every vote counts. Be the difference maker!

    Just got my vote cast !
    Definitely a tough decision with so many good pictures.
    It came down to three photos that were not only good looking but excellent pictures in my opinion.
    I was able to narrow it down to two and thought about this for a few days now, was tough but I was able to make a decision as I studied the pictures and compared.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that this shouldnt be a popularity contest or vote for who you know, it is more about the pictures and personal likes.
    Thanks to all who participated by posting their pictures and those who have voted or will vote.
    Lets get this participation up 'raisedaroof'and Represent Larc with a picture

    WOOHOO! I'm tied with @91mini

    Some POTQ I don't even get a single vote. :D

    Of course, I showed both pictures to my wife and she said she would vote for @91mini's. :eek:

    I feel ya man. I've been in the same boat with no votes some contests.

    I'll make things interesting @Humblefish because I don't feel right voting for myself and I really like your photo the best. My vote is for you putting us both at 6 votes at the time of this post.

    Maybe we'll have a runoff?? LARC hasn't had one of those in years.

    FWIW; I voted for @Saltwater Gavin's pic (the first day) because I really like sharks.

    It was tough. I had it narrowed down to 4 and just kept staring at your pic every time I opened the thread. You barely edged it out for that reason for me.

    Has it ever been considered to hide the results until the member actually votes? Might increase voting if you can't see the votes cast until you vote?

    Some people don't look at the quality of the picture, they just vote on what it is.

    That's a good suggestion. Maybe we'll try that for the next contest.

    No matter how you vote the important part is that you did.

    I look specifically at quality first. Once I narrow down the highest quality, I am admittedly biased by content but really just look for what is most appealing in the photo; color spread, focus/depth of field. Its one of the few things in my life that is not numerically or spreadsheet based...although I could probably come up with something.

    Personally, I don't think we should be saying who we voted for until after the polls closed to not skew the results. But I guess that cat is out of the bag :D Kind of like when people wait to the last minute to vote for president because they want to see who is winning. Funny how that did not work this last time though -bonk-

    Your probably right but it is just a digital award no matter how you slice it.
